Some advice please. I took the decision to self medicate a few months ago. I have been taking Thyro-Gold and I feel so much better. Other than the terrible itching and my breathlessness when I execise. I am due to go and visit a private GP for blood tests, because I thought it would be safer to be under the care of a doctor. But it's a lot of money that I can not really afford. So I was thinking of going down the route of using "blue horizon" for blood tests and asking the kindly folk on here for interpretation of the results. This is much cheaper option. But I am a bit nervous of taking away the safety net of a private GP. Advice please.
